Regarded as New Zealand’s sunniest province, the Marlborough region is an area of great natural beauty which occupies the north-eastern corner of the South Island. The landscape is diverse, stretching from the sheltered waterways of the Marlborough Sounds to Kaikoura, where snow-capped mountains meet the sea. The sheltered coastal bays of Marlborough supported a small Māori population, from possibly as early as the twelfth century.
